Conservation Commission Member (1 position – term ending March 2019) 

The Newfane Conservation Commission was established in 1998 with nine members.  In 2006, the membership was reduced to seven and in 2012, down to five in order to meet quorum requirements (three.)

Over the years, the Newfane Conservation Commission not only applied for and obtained numerous grants to help create the three trails on the 168.5 acre town owned parcel, but produced a series of educational and informational brochures, met with neighboring commissions and state agencies and even gained the distinction of the Vermont Conservation Commission of the year in 2005.  Hundreds of hours of work, planning and physical, were necessary to get where we are today.  We are a project oriented group and have at least one trail working session every year.
